FILE - In this Sept. 19, 2012, file photo Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., speaks with reporters following a Democratic strategy luncheon on Capitol Hill in Washington. The most partisan, least productive Congress in memory has skipped out of Washington so lawmakers can make their case for voters to re-elect them. The Senate closed the Capitol not long after sending President Barak Obama a spending bill that will make sure the government won't shut down Oct. 1, the start of the new budget year. The measure passed early Saturday by a 62-30 vote. AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
